Yeah well, he also believes that Medicare and Social Security are unconstitutional and he has stated that he would not have voted in favor of the civil rights act. He also supports the idea that private businesses should have the right to discriminate. As a teenager, I briefly worked in a business that did just that and I refuse to tolerate such behavior in society.
Medicare and Social Security are unconstitutional, along with the Civil Rights Act. Does he think they are bad things? No. He merely thinks the way they came about were unconstitutional and caused an unnecessary expansion of the federal government when the states could have solved the issues in a way they saw fit.
